B Local Wisconsin


B Local Wisconsin is a start-up organization that is comprised of various business leaders from the WI Sustainable Business Council (WSBC), other like-minded nonprofit organizations, Certified B Corporations that are located in WI and Wisconsin-based benefit corporations.  We are grateful to the WSBC for hosting our first webpage, as we believe visitors to the WSBC will be interested in our activities.  What to learn more about B Local Wisconsin?

Certified B Corps and benefit corporations are often confused. They share much in common and are complementary, but have a few important differences.  Certified B Corporations and benefit corporations are both leaders of a global movement to use business as a force for good. Both meet higher standards of accountability and transparency. Both create the opportunity to unlock our full human potential and creativity to use the power of business for the higher purpose of solving society's most challenging problems.

Some companies are both incorporated as benefit corporations and certified as B Corporations—others are just one or the other. To learn the key differences please visit benefitcorp.net for more information.
